That dog is making fun of me

At one time or another we have all wondered what the dog was thinking about. Christina Hunger, 26, devised a keyboard of sorts to help her pup, Stella communicate not only words but her thoughts and feelings too. When Stella wants to “talk,” she steps on buttons corresponding with words recorded and programmed into the device. A speech-language pathologist with an 18-month-old dog is working to find out, and she’s already discovered that her dog Stella can literally tell her things — like she’s tired after playing and now would like a nap, or that she wants to eat, or that she would like to go outside. The dog now knows at least 29 words and can combine up to five words to make a phrase or sentence. “The way she uses words to communicate and the words she’s combining is really similar to a 2-year-old child.”


Too smart to be funny

A kennel advertised a talking dog for sale for $25. A man did not believe it, but came to check it out. He buyer said, “Who are you kidding with this talking dog thing. What is the catch?” At that point the sad dog looked up at the buyer and explained. “Please rescue me for only $25 bucks. This owner is mean to me and never feeds me or walks me. I have not been to the vet in years. I was once the fastest rising trick dog in the circus and I served in the army and got three ribbons in Afghanistan.” The buyer was aghast he said, “this dog really does talk. Why are you selling him for only $25?” The owner explained, “I cannot stand his lies.”

One day a man went to an auction. While there, he bid on an exotic, intelligent talking parrot. He really wanted this bird, so he got caught up in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he bid way more than he intended, he won the bid. The price was high, but the fine bird was finally his! As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the Auctioneer, “I sure hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can’t talk!” “Don’t worry,” said the Auctioneer, “He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?”

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking a round with a fly swatter.
“What are you doing?” she asked. “Hunting flies,” He responded. “Oh, really, did you get any?” She asked. “Yep, three males, two females,” he replied. Intrigued, she asked, “How can you tell?” He responded, “Three were on a beer can, two were on your phone.”

I’m attending a self-help group for compulsive talkers.
It’s called On and On Anon.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.


Listen to Stella people talk

How does Fido feel about that?
